How to sell lottery tickets

Let’s talk about promotion! Since we have moved online there are so many ways to promote the lottery:

  • Encouraging parents to purchase a ticket(s).
  • Have the parents and cadets share on their social media to support the squadron
  • Have the cadets draft an e-mail to all their family members (if they are outside of Ontario, have the cadets’ parents or Squadron facilitate the purchase), This is also a great skill to develop.

When a cadet sells a ticket, please send an email to 151rcacs@gmail.com with the following information:

  • Your Name and Rank
  • The Date
  • Person Ticket was sold too.
  • Number of Tickets sold.

In order to track the number of tickets sold by a cadet, we need an email with the information above. The current Air Cadet League website doesn’t have a place for the cadet name.
